This week, I’m sharing one of my all time color combo favorites – Annie Sloan Old Ochre with a wash of Old White.
Here is the Chest on Chest dresser. The entire piece was painted in Old Ochre and sanded with a 220 grit sandpaper to create a smooth surface. Then a wash of Old White was applied and it was sealed with Annie Sloan clear wax. I hope you can all see the Old Ochre peeking out underneath the wash of Old White.
I also used this combo on the Baker Secretary.
Old Ochre was applied over the entire piece and Old White was used as a wash only on the drawer and cabinet door fronts. I really like the slight contrast it created. Here is a tutorial I made on how I apply a wash.
Have a great weekend!
Love your work it’s awesome!
Another great video! At the end of the video you say you will get back to us in just a sec – is there a part 2 to this Wash tutorial? What water/paint ratio would you have roughly? 80% water 20% paint? Thanks!
Beautiful work!! I love it, and I would really love to start doing this!
Give it a try! It’s a lot of fun 🙂
